What To Pack For Nursery/Pre-School

What To Pack For Nursery/Pre-school | Chalk Kids BlogYour little one starting nursery is the start of a whole new chapter! Most nurseries have settling in sessions, which is the perfect time to ease your child into their new routine. Emotional moments will inevitably crop up, but to ease any ‘mum guilt’ remember this transitional period is often short lived and hopefully it won’t be long till they’re running inside without a second glance. To help get your little one ready, we’ve rounded up some cute and essential nursery items to include in their first backpack! Check them out below… 

1. Fjallraven Mini Backpack 

We love the Kanken Mini Backpack, which is eco-friendly and can be easily wiped clean. Ideal for toddlers! 

2. Sausage Animal Pencil & Eraser Sets

How sweet are these little pencils – They’re sure to be an instant hit with young children. 

3. Wooden Colouring Set 

You can’t beat a traditional wooden colouring set, this one from Molly & The Wolf comes with 12 colouring pencils.

4. Decorate With a Keyring 

This Tulipop keyring features one of their mystical characters and can be attached onto backpacks or pencil cases to add a cute personal touch. 

5. Wooden Giraffe Ruler 

Why settle for an ordinary ruler when you could have this one?! 

6. Pencil case

A clear pencil case will make it easier to find all those fun pencils and rubbers.

7. Kids Hunter Wellington Boots

We love Hunter wellies, which are an essential all year round (especially if you live here in the UK.)

8. Bento Lunch Box 

This lunchbox with its neat dividers is the perfect way to make sure your little one has a healthy and varied meal. 

9. Spare Clothes

You’ll need to pack a spare pair of clothes in case of any spills or ‘accidents’. We love Mingo basics

10. Victoria Plimsolls (Indoor Shoes)

Many nurseries/pre-schools will require your child to wear indoor shoes. Victoria Plimsolls come in a lovely range of colours and are elasticated so they stay on. 

11. Bobble Filtered Water Bottle

Bobble filtered water bottles are a must have. The reusable bottle includes a replaceable carbon filter, removing chlorine and organic contaminants.

12. Cozy Waterproof Jacket

You can’t beat GOSOAKY. The Eagle Eye Raincoat is two jackets in one, with a snug detachable inner jacket for the colder months and a storm ready hood.
